In the run-up to the EU elections Alzheimer Europe is hosting a reception at the European Parliament on 19 March to highlight why dementia must be prioritised


Alzheimer Europe recently launched its European Elections Campaign 2024. As part of this campaign, we are inviting MEPs to join us on 19 March 2024, between 18.00 and 19.30, in the Members’ Salon in the European Parliament, at an event hosted by MEPs Milan Brglez, Deirdre Clune, Tilly Metz and Sirpa Pietikäinen. This event is being held in the run up to the European Parliament elections in June, to highlight why dementia must be prioritised.

During the reception, there will be the opportunity to sign a large-scale version of Alzheimer Europe’s Dementia Pledge 2024, with a photographer present to capture the event and MEPs who sign the Pledge. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet representatives of national Alzheimer’s associations, people living with dementia and carers of people with dementia, to hear first-hand their priorities and how you can help prioritise dementia in your role.

We hope to be able to welcome you to this event – if you would be interested in participating, please confirm with Alzheimer Europe directly at:

If you are unable to attend, you can Pledge by:

• announcing your support on Twitter(X)/Facebook/LinkedIn using the hashtag #DementiaPledge2024

• or by signing and returning the Dementia Pledge 2024 form to us by email.

If you sign the pledge, Alzheimer Europe will add your name to a dedicated campaign section on our website and will publicise your support on our social media channels. Should you have any questions about the Pledge or the Reception, please do not hesitate to contact us.
